Russia bans all U.S. food, EU fruit and vegetables in sanctions response; NATO fears invasion

MOSCOW/DONETSK Ukraine Wed Aug 6, 2014 8:20pm EDT

(Reuters) - Russia will ban all imports of food from the United States and all fruit and vegetables from Europe, the state news agency reported on Wednesday, a sweeping response to Western sanctions imposed over its support for rebels in Ukraine.

The measures will hit consumers at home who rely on cheap imports, and on farmers in the West for whom Russia is a big market. Moscow is by far the biggest buyer of European fruit and vegetables and the second biggest importer of U.S. poultry. (...)

The West on the wrong path

In view of the events in Ukraine, the government and many media have switched from level-headed to agitated. The spectrum of opinions has been narrowed to the width of a sniper scope. The politics of escalation does not have a realistic goal – and harms German interests.

Every war is accompanied by a kind of mental mobilization: war fever. Even smart people are not immune to controlled bouts of this fever. “This war in all its atrociousness is still a great and wonderful thing. It is an experience worth having“ rejoiced Max Weber in 1914 when the lights went out in Europe. Thomas Mann felt a “cleansing, liberation, and a tremendous amount of hope“. (...)

That explains why Americans are pushing Europeans into an economic war with Russia.

This might be the 1990's all over again for Finland.

I don't get it why Finland hasn't understood that being a Russian satellite isn't good in the long run, politically and economically. Trade with Russia has always been unstable, even for pro-Russian countries like Finland as for some reason it joined the EU while quite often showing sentiment more akin to the CIS countries.

You know what to do, then. Join your Mongol brothers in our glorious Eurasian Union. It will be like a new Golden Horde.

Even Western-European EU countries are rather surprised at the statements that your foreign minister, Erki Tuomioja has made.

My last post was just very truthful so I'm not surprised that a xenophobic Finn with half of a brain can't understand that Finland is Russia's "friend" in the EU, but the chance of that backfiring are just very high.

Finland has 2 options, start being more Western-minded and stay in the EU or step out of the EU and continue being "Russia's friend" while joining CIS.

Currently Finland is in-between those 2 things and that is just making things worse.

^Great post. But who is Erki and what did he say?
